Programs for Troubled Teens From Michigan
Many Michigan families feel like they have to walk on eggshells around their daughter, as she struggles with the transition into adolescence. In the blink of an eye, a girl can shift from being a happy child into someone that may be impossible to recognize. These early years are significant in defining a girls’ adult personality, so it’s important for parents to step in to ensure a healthy future as waiting for her to grow out of this “phase” doesn’t always work. Programs for troubled teens can help families support their daughter through this difficult period.

Asheville Academy for Girls’ Program Helps Troubled Teens from Michigan
There are many reasons Asheville Academy for Girls is unique among programs for troubled teens. For one, Asheville Academy for Girls offers a therapeutic boarding school. Many Michigan girls find school being at least partly responsible for their struggles – whether it be bullying, academics, or any number of other factors. Some of these issues have a significant impact on their academic performance, which reinforces the distress they feel at school. Moreover, teachers can find themselves overworked and underprepared to provide individualized attention to every student. The opposite is true at Asheville Academy for Girls.
With an accredited academic program, Asheville Academy for Girls guarantees that students are learning material that is consistent with the local curriculum. Out of the many programs for troubled teens, only Asheville Academy for Girls ensures that a child is never far removed from real life during their healing experience. Rather than considering young girls troubled, our approach helps them develop healthier coping mechanisms to overcome the issues they struggle with.
